WHAT IS IT?
Cellulite is the accumulation of fatty deposits in the body and usually can be found on the thighs, upper arms and gluteal(buttocks) area. It will have a dimpled appearance on the surface of the skin.
Usually, areas that have cellulite are cold to the touch, this is due to the fact that there is not enough blood circulation to the area because the enlarged fat cells(adipocytes) in the area is restricting the blood flow.
The hormone estrogen, a sedentary lifestyle and periods of weight gain can all lead to the formation of cellulite.
Cellulite can be classified into two different categories- soft cellulite and hard cellulite. Soft Cellulite would normally be more noticeable because it doesn’t attach itself to the muscle. It’s softer, saggy, moves around more and usually affects larger areas of the body. Unlike hard cellulite, it sits closer to the surface, making it easier to treat.
Hard cellulite is harder to get rid of because it’s more concentrated and lives close to or on the muscle. Hard cellulite tends to occur in more athletic body types and is harder to see with the naked eye. In some cases, hard cellulite can be sensitive to the touch.
Cellulite is often classified using three grades:
Grade One: Cellulite is not evident when you’re standing or sitting, but if the skin is pinched, it becomes noticeable.
Grade Two: When standing, there appears to be cellulite, but when you lay down it disappears.
Grade Three: The skin looks dimpled regardless if you are standing or sitting and always when you pinch it.
Non-Surgical Skin Tightening – This is a radio frequency treatment which will help to reduce the appearance of cellulite by stimulating your skin in the treated area to produce more collagen, which will tighten the skin.
This is a non-invasive treatment so there will be no downtime and it is pain-free. This treatment can be done every 2 weeks, for best results we recommend a course of 8-10 sessions. Results can be seen after the first treatment and will continue to improve, even up to 6 months after your treatments.
